MIDLAND — When you’re looking for ways to keep kids amused this summer,
chances are the periodic table doesn’t make the short list.
Even the title of the latest family-friendly, interactive exhibit to
move into the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art — “It’s a Gas!” —
is more likely to evoke thoughts of pulling a finger than beryllium,
rhodium and francium, also known as Be, Rh and Fr.

The only museum devoted exclusively to multimedia and light art exhibits
in America opened its doors June 10 in the historic former Comerica
Headquarters building on Grand River at Warren on the western edge of the Woodbridge neighborhood.
In Germany, where the term originates, a kunsthalle
is more than just a gallery. Around the world, kunsthalles operate as
exhibition halls and community centers for temporary art exhibits,
unlike museums, which host permanent collections. And Kunsthalle Detroit director Tate Osten says the organization hopes to be more than just art space to the city.
